I was checking on something else yesterday, and I noticed that the Jersey Shore has been cancelled.
You see there's two possibilities.
Either a young writer from Jersey wanted to celebrate where he or she came from, OR a studio factor factory wanted to capitalize on the lowest common denominator glory that's come from the that reality TV by bottling it's stereotypes for mass production by flavouring their new single white female lawyer series.
I did not think for a second that the show was based on the actual Jersey Shore since the other two kids I know who are famous for being from Jersey are Jay and Silent Bob form the clerks franchise... But it's a certainty that they predate the spray on tan.
